Caught up on all the CA drama and it's quite something.


I always thought CA's role as an aggregator was over like 4-5 years ago, so it's a bit weird that the mass exodus is only starting now. Hell I'm surprised people still visited the website. I mean what was there to even gain by being affiliated with it instead of just striking out on youtube which is what most people ended up doing anyway?

I'm not trying to be passive aggressive. I'm just shocked at the sheer amount of vitriol and hatred that some people have been clearly waiting to unleash. I've seen John called a "terrorist thought leader". Utterly false allegations that he mentally abused his wife. Developers essentially saying "He reviewed my games badly so I'm glad he's dead". People close to him attacked for mourning him (including his wife), openly mocking those that do, talking about wishing they could piss/dance on his grave, other people justifying this revelling while giving the nod at other ridiculous accusations of him being a Nazi or a transphobe or whatever...and for what? You'd think he was a dictator. Not a critic or a reviewer who happened to die at a young age. It has frankly been horrible going online the past couple of days because of it. Some of this poo poo even coming from people I used to follow and respect.

I'm sorry, but all this has had me feeling kind of low. Any talk of how some people care about media too much, laughing at their stupidity and all that just feels hollow in the light of all this. It's incredibly depressing.

The dude just passed away. It's so weird going through the previous pages or jumping on twitter and seeing some of the things being said, because you'd think people would have enough decency to wait like a month or something before mouthing off on the guy

He had flaws and did stupid stuff, most of it he owned up to and regretted during the later years of his life.He also did heaps for many indie developers ( Warframe for example would not be around if not for him) and helped jump start the careers of many people who owe a lot of their success to him.

If you didn't like the guy fair enough. He was a mixed bag and if you can't look past his shortcomings, whatever, no ones asking you to suddenly like who he was. But some of the posts I read here and on twitter are disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself if you partook in any of it. He was a games critic, not some evil dictator.

The whole Cadmus arc in JLU was fantastic start to finish, it really felt like the writers got what Superman was supposed to be and what kind of issue powers on that level would cause. They even got you to love The Question, a nobody D List character.

Their DC animated films are so scattershot. You have great stuff like Under the Red Hood next to trash like Killing Joke, wacky stuff like Batman: Ninja and pandering crap like the TAS "inspired" Harley Quinn movie.

But it does have an Adam West animated feature which is objectively the best.

The more I see the more I'm convinced that Paul Dini is the true strength behind the DCAU and Bruce Timm is just a pervert whose fetishes were reined in by broadcast standards.

I would say it was Dwayne McDuffie who pulled it together for JLU. His presence elevated the material.

It was an arc about how terrifying superheroes can be if they are left unchecked in a kids cartoon.

Exactly right. I have no idea why DC is so obsessed with being "grim" in all their latest takes, because they clearly do not know what to do with that type of tone for their material. Teenage melodrama and constant gory violence does not make what they write any good, it just serves to undermine the material they have. Not to mention all the creepy sex scenes they write. I honestly cannot imagine a more cringeworthy scene than the sex scene they put in the Harley Quinn movie, although the one between Batgirl and Batman in the Killing Joke comes pretty close.

I distinctly remember at the time Teen Titans got a bad rep because it was too silly and didn't take the source material seriously, on top of the anime style being very disliked. Kinda funny how all these years later Teen Titans Go gets the same sorta treatment when it's basically just taking all the goofy episodes from the original Teen Titans and going completely into that side of it.

I think I like Teen Titans Go more than the original now, simply because it has an episode where Cyborg plays an 80's rock song for basically the entire runtime. They even did a 5 parter episode for it later down the road and it is just fantastic.

True but the problem is that the channel makes the rules for CN's shows, so until they get over their obsession with the current "All one show, all the time" subject, you're not getting regular new episodes of [Other Show] any time soon.

What happened to all the other shows CN had going. I know they lost the Regular Show/ Adventure block they setup, but I thought there was a roster of other stuff they could put on to fill in the gaps ( We Bare Bears, Ninjago or whatever it is,etc).

how the hell is plinkett not condescending?

The whole idea behind Plinkett is that it's a shield of sorts. Mike used him to basically say " this guy is one of the dregs of humanity, the only type of person who would ever spend this much time talking about the film and yet he still recognizes these issues, so why can't you" in order to deflect the all too common criticism at the time of " you're such a weirdo, who spends this much time analysing films". They basically set the style that a lot of video makers went on to use and now we seem flooded by video essayists who all try to ape their style with none of the charm, humor or insight RLM bring to the table.

I know goons here don't like the character, but for most people the Plinkett character was what sold those initial videos and Mike was not wrong in thinking no one would have listened to him if he had just done those videos as himself.

Plus that whole twitter exchange of Plinkett videos only talking about franchises being ruined is so off the goddamn mark, because if you even watched the videos for 5 minutes you'd know that wasn't the case.

The individual/small scale stuff in WoW has actually generally been good- like leveling zone story arcs and stuff like that. The overarching story in BfA makes no real sense to me and I kinda hate it because it always has to lead back to the status quo- meaning no matter what insane event happens that inevitably drives both factions to work together in some fashion to save the entire planet or possibly galaxy from some bigger evil someone always appoints a war criminal to run one of the factions and pisses the other off and their increasingly asinine war starts over again.

I never understood why there was a faction war in the first place. When I first played Warsong Gulch all those years ago in Vanilla, I always thought it was a border skirmish over orcs wanting lumber and the night elves wanting them out of their land, preventing the desecration of the forest with both faction leaders turning a blind eye to it to prevent full scale war.

Hell my Rogue never even identified with the Alliance, I always felt he was part of the Ravenholdt society basically just using the cities and alliance towns as trading hubs. To me that always made more sense, multiple factions within the Horde and Alliance, causing conflicts across the world and the leaders either turning a blind eye to it because it provided resource gains or trying to manage the fallout.

NPC leaders and players zealously following their leaders into battle for no reason makes no sense whatsoever and makes even less sense the more they try to push dumb faction wars where you have have a leader commit wholesale genocide and you have races who donít stand for that sort of behaviour just meekly go along with it for no reason at all

Anderson Is pretty shoddy overall Iíve found. He speaks like a high schooler would while giving a speech, his videos are excessively long (like jesus christ did this Fallout one have to be an hour +) and doesnít know how to thread his arguments together in a coherent manner, constantly meandering and getting sidetracked rather than getting to the point.

Heís also in this weird position of being just simply too good at games, itís almost impossible to trust his view on a games difficulty and how it affects the overall feeling for the player because heís so technically proficient ( when he was talking about Hollow Knight and itís difficulty while just absolutely destroying the challenge mode bosses, it just undermined everything he was saying about it being average difficulty). How can you trust that his read on the game is one that most people are going to experience when he just dismantles any difficult roadblock with ease.

Plus he thinks the Bloodborne chalice dungeons were the best part of the game and he wants more of it, which I personally just donít get. They strip down the atmosphere, the extremely tight and well thought out level design, the environmental storytelling(for the most part) and all youíre left with is randomized dungeons and the combat. Boggles my mind how anyone could find those grindfests the best part of the game, even if you focus on just the mechanics the way he does.

I think in general I just find him to be a poor Mathewmattosis imitation, where he only occasionally has something decent to say in those 3 hour videos yet somehow got really popular off of it.

As for Dunkey. I never watched his stuff directly outside of that Octopath review a lot of people took umbrage with.
So I did see him playing that game and its encounters in the slowest way possible, while mistakenly assuming he was fighting level 1 monsters, which would make any combat system look awful.
I dont think thats him trying to misrepresent the game on purpose though, more a consequence of a natural dislike of random battles and trying to brute force through them.
(though the game does give you plenty of explanations on how combat works)

I liked the game more than he did, but I do kinda agree that Random encounters are an unnecessary throwback (outside of Pokemon). Just give it an off switch in that case, like Bravely Default did.

No he actually does it on purpose. Heís done it before for other videos.

For example there was one video where he compared LoL and Dota graphics, he used modern footage for LoL in an empty lane with only two characters in it. For the Dota one he used 2011 footage in a 5 v5 fight with multiple heroes who have the ability to micromanage other characters. He used this as an example of how one game was visually clearer than the other.

There was also an Assasin creeds video where if I remember correctly he recreated very hard to get glitches as an example of the game being fundamentally brolken. Heís a funny guy but donít give him a pass, there are lots of examples where he either omits information or outright lies to make a point

The reason people do this is because playing the good side in games always has better rewards. Itís not worth playing a villain when you get punished for it, so of course everyone rolls towards the goody two shoes side because thatís where the developer pushes you.

There was a reddit post a while back that broke it all down, but Valve eat a lot of costs and offer so many support services for devs, that other game clients including Epic simply do not do.

Devs may be taking it for granted because itís been there for so long, but Steam is incredible in what it offers, letís not pretend otherwise.

Not to mention Epic is offering no competition, their client is still as lovely as day one and theyíre just buying out the market in attempt to be the only storefront on the market. Do you really think if they reach that goal, theyíll keep the PC ecosystem as free and open as Valve let it be? No chance.

Especially Timm who as otherís have mentioned writes really gross material.

I remember watching the Killing Joke in the cinema when it went on that limited run and I have never before or since heard a crowd boo a scene like they did the Batgirl sex scene.

I also find it really gross that he decided to make the Joker sexually active instead of being asexual. I really did not need to know that the Joker tracks down prostitutes first thing he does every time he escapes prison Timm and I certainly didnít need the image
